This is essentially a game for the 2011/2012 championship.
wow slow down pls. the heat will beat the old celtics team tonight but will lose the championship game against the thunder. the celtics are way overrated if you ask me; the sixers were on the verge of eliminating them. the celtics are done. go thunderslets talk about euro 2012. who will win it?
I respect your opinion, but I disagree. Thunders are not even counted as the best team of the league, they did well the whole year, but not as well as Spurs. San Antonio should have won the series, but luck would have it otherwise. There are many variables that can be broken down and digested as to why they lost to the Thunders, a team that is on the rise but not made a name for itself yet. Under no circumstances am I taking the hard work of players like Durant, but we have to tell the truth, if they maintain the same level of dedication they will take the 2012/2013 championship, for now they have to be aware they are matching against a hungry team.
As for your assumption on Celtics, you need to go back and start looking at their record, not only this year, but also multiple years. Celtics are a great team, they are very powerful in team coordination and individual talents. You are talking about a team that is so powerful it has made history several times. So, have some respect for Celtics. Should they somehow win tonight, they will take the championship with most certainty. However, the other team knows this is their time to shine, and they not only shine tonight, but will radiate turning the natural night to artificial day. Tonight being a Saturday, Miami's clubs will blast their speakers so loud people with hearing sensitivity need to find a tranquil motel.
